Claremont McKenna College consistently garners acclaim as one of the finest liberal arts colleges. This praise is due largely to its unique academics. While many liberal arts colleges strive for the broadest possible curriculum, Claremont McKenna maintains a focus on public policy, business and economics.
Despite these being CMC’s main focus, the school also offers programs in the humanities and natural sciences. These include unusual interdisciplinary majors like Philosophy & Public Affairs or Philosophy, Politics & Economics.
Claremont McKenna uses need-blind admissions. As a result, the school offers financial aid designed to meet all of its students’ demonstrated need.
CMC does not include loans in financial aid packages, replacing them instead with scholarships and grants. This means that you won’t need to pay back your need-based financial aid.
In addition to need-based aid, Claremont McKenna offers a few substantial merit scholarships for incoming freshmen. These include the McKenna Achievement Award, which is $10,000 per year, and the Seaver Leadership Award and Interdisciplinary Science Scholarship, both of which cover full tuition.
100% of students gave Claremont McKenna College 5 stars overall.
Claremont is a great feeder school to places like Harvard and Stanford. Their classes are small and they have a mix of 5 schools called the Claremont Colleges and Graduate Schools. Fun Socializing and going to other Claremont Colleges classes. Great social life. Private fraternites or social clubs. First class instructors. Small classes. Hard work Great School.
I truly can’t say enough of how wonderful Claremont McKenna college is. The college has great, involved and caring professors, the location is great, the weather fantastic, but the BEST thing is the work training. Opportunities and experience CMC provides, so much so that when they graduate the companies can’t wait to hire CMC grads!
